Let me channel my inner Ron Swanson for a moment (not hard for me to do under any circumstance):

In this article from Time (linked below, though I’m not sure why I got the hard to recognize cheese photograph and not the even harder to recognize but more aesthetically pleasing butter cover image), we see that there have been at least 5 “pyramid schemes” issued since 1979 as recommendations from the government – the US government – regarding what Americans should be eating. Apparently they have all been wrong. And yet: apparently we still want the government to recommend stuff.

People: what kind of insane are you when the very same institution that gets so many things wrong is also put forth as the institution to help us solve problems (often the same problems that it created in the first place)?
